Maybe I'm back on Earth? Maybe this is some kind of marine research center, and they like ultra-modern furniture?

Or maybe not Earth. Or maybe they're really metrosexual.

OK, waiting around for someone to find me isn't going to help anything. I should just walk up to one of these people and ask for help... But what if they call the police? And they find I'm missing?

OK, this isn't the Bay Islands. Even if they do report it, I don't think they will contact Bay Islands missing persons that fast...

I open the door and walk up to the nearest group. God, this is humiliating. Again. I file away my realization this is the same as my arrival in Bumundo for later.

If Julian can tell what language the groups are speaking, he will try to speak the same langage if he knows it (English, Riask, or Spanish). If the groups aren't speaking a language he knows or he can't tell what langauge they are speaking, he will go with English. If the groups are speaking different languages, he'll approach the group that speaks the language he knows best.

I'll say something to the effect of, "Excuse me. I woke up here, my clothes are gone, I don't know how I got here. Please, I need help.

I don't think an influence skill roll is appropriate here.

Secret Reaction Roll... +3 Pitiable (If they think you're not a staged beggar), +3 appearance.



"Are you okay?" asks one of the women "Any headache or dizziness? are you injured anywhere?"

I knew I should have had Julian bang his head on the floor before coming out here.

"I don't think so. I don't feel hurt anywhere, but I don't know where I am or how I got here."

The woman is somewhat taken aback by that.


"Ok, who do you live with then?"

"I used to live in an orphanage. It..." I'm lost for words for a moment. "It wasn't a good place."

"But where do you live now?"


She seems to be getting more concerned.

Well, if I tell her that I was living a hole in plants that grow above the sun and the clouds, she'll probably think I'm nuts.

"I found a hole that was pretty dry; I slept there for a while. Made it a bit bigger to fit my stuff in there. I don't know where it is now."

Fast-Talk (with some bonus?)

3d6 <= 13
1 + 2 + 3 = 6 ... success
I'd figure there'd be some bonus for simply omitting an plausible detail, but it's a good roll anyway.

She looks confused. "Then what are you doing in this area? Shouldn't they have locked you out? Are you from Panogos or from out-system?"


She yells at the others: "Does anyone have extra clothes?"


They don't. Someone suggests they might need to buy him some.
